Here's Tyler helping Daddy tune up the four-wheeler.

Last night he had a great sleep, from 8:30pm - 6:30am. And tonight he went down at 7:15pm!!!

A big couple of days for Mr Tyler.

Yesterday he had his 15-month immunisations. He had a good scream with the MMR one, and the injection site is all red and swollen today, although he doesn't appear bothered by it. He was grizzly afterwards and was in bed asleep at 7:30pm which is a record for him! :)

Today he had his 15 month Plunket check. He is 11.66kg and 82cm tall. No other dramas and of course they were all smiles because he is still being b/fed.

He has also cut his 5th tooth, in the top gum.

It's birthday week in the McLeod family. On Friday we celebrated Granna's birthday. She had a lovely dinner out with Richard and then we all had cake and coffee and lots of other yummy things at Helen & Craig's.

Today is Grandad's birthday but he is in Rangiora so that's a bit far to go for cake and coffee :)

Tomorrow is someone else's birthday but we won't mention that will we? ;)

Tyler has a mirror in his room on which we have stuck the painted wooden letters of his name that he was given by Aunty Leona for his birthday. He now says 'Ta-ta' every time we point to his name. His favourite game at the moment is 'Ouch' which consists of him bouncing up and down on Daddy or Mummy's tummy making them say 'Ouch' very loudly (especially if they have just had tea).

Isn't this a lovely photo of Tyler and his Daddy?

As promised, some more photos from the party.... cousin Kim and Nathan as Bonnie & Clyde and big brother Anton as Sherlock Holmes.

A lovely day, where we all just pottered around the farmlet, riding the four-wheeler, and the new dirt-bike. Pop and Ali visited too. We had tea at the local pub.

In an effort to tire Mr Toad and make him sleepy, we went for a big long walk around the farmlet after we got home last night. And it was working until at 8:30pm when he was almost asleep, someone knocked on the door to say that Benji the baby goat was running down the road. Grrr, I wonder what goat steaks are like? So it was 9:45pm before he was down, but on the plus side he slept right through till 7:15am. I bought the book 'No-Cry Sleep Solution' so will be interested to see what help I can find in that.

He is going through a clingy stage at the moment, and doesn't like me leaving him at daycare.

Mr Toad is at it again *sigh* Not asleep until 10:30pm. I blame Daddy though. Just as Tyler was starting to nod off at about 9pm, Daddy comes home from work and whisks him off outside to check the livestock. Guaranteed to wake up a small boy get him bouncing off the walls again.

Ah well, at least he slept right through, in fact I had to wake him at 7:30am. Found him upside down in his cot, on top of the covers with his head jammed in the corner.

Just a quick post and a of photo from Pop's (Chris' Dad, Bruce) 60th birthday party in Te Anau on Saturday night. We went as Popeye, Olive Oyl and Swee'pea. Tyler's big bro Anton was Sherlock Holmes. The band played one song especially for 'the wee man in blue' - The Wheels on the Bus'. We'll post some more photos tomorrow.

Tyler the future Mozart Fellow

As you can see, Tyler was about to do some research in the Oxford Companion of Music. That's Mum's boy :) Actually his favourite books are Dear Zoo and Jungle Friends, both given to him by Granna. He especially likes the lion rrrroar!!

Managed to get Mr Toad to sleep by 9 last night and wonder of wonders he was asleep in bed by 8:15pm tonight! Transferred asleep from the car, but who cares?
